Freedom Sought for Shcharansky

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The International Commit-.
tee for the Release of
Anatoly Shcharansky last
week appealed to the Soviet
government to release him
from prison and allow him
to emigrate to Israel and re-
join his wife, Avital, there.

In a special gathering at
the daily vigil across the
street from the Soviet Em-
bassy, former Congressman
Robert Drinan of Mass.,
chairman of the American
section of the Committee,
said that Shcharansky "is
one of the world's great

leaders" because "he wields
great influence as a symbol
for the cause of justice and
human rights."
Drinan pointed out that
since his arrest in 1977,
Shcharansky "has been un-
able to monitor Soviet
emigration policies in ac-
cordance with the pro-
visions of the Helsinki Final
Act" and "his health is not
stable" in his confinement
at the Perm Prison in
Siberia.
Shcharansky, who was
Drinan's official guide in
Moscow in 1975 during
the Congress'man's visit
to the Soviet Union, is
serving a 13-year prison
sentence.
Among the approx-
imately 200 persons assem-
bled for the vigil were many
non-Jews, including Mrs.
Annette Roush, a director of
CREED, an acronym for
Christian Rescue Effort for
Emancipation of Dissi-
dents.

sent wrote birthday greet-
ings for Shcharansky.
These and some 200 others,
or a total of about 400 cards,
were presented to the Soviet
Embassy for delivery to
Shcharansky, but the
Soviet Embassy refused to
accept them. Samuel Sislen,
of the Jewish Community
Council of Greater Wash-
ington, then mailed the
cards at the post office.
In a related development,
representatives of the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry (SSSJ) and the
Jewish Identify Center
(JIC) have issued a joint
statement calling upon
Jewish organizations, par-
ticularly synagogues and
yeshivot, to spotlight the
critical condition of prisoner
of conscience Iosif Men-
delevich, who has been con-
ducting a hunger strike for
almost three months in the
Perm Labor camp in the
Soviet Union.
An Orthodox Jew,
Mendelevich recently re-
lated in a letter to his sis-
ter in Israel that he is "be-
tween life and death" and
is forced to work on the
Sabbath as an iron cutter
which he had previously
been able to avoid by
working additional
hours during the week,
the two groups reported.
They also said that a
Passover Haggada that had
been gotteh through to him
from the outside, along with
a few other items of reli-
gious comfort which sus-
tained him through intoler-
able conditions of his long
imprisonment, were re-
cently confiscated along
with his personal letters.
Iosif Mendelevich Re-
membrance Day at the
Isaiah Wall opposite the
United Nations will take
place Feb. 8.
Meanwhile, Max Kam-
pelman, a high-ranking
U.S. diplomat, says that
Western unity achieved at
the recent review of the
Helsinki Accords in Madrid
should prompt continued
use of these forums to win
human rights concessions
from the Soviet Union.
According to Kampel-
man, co-chairman of the
American delegation to
the 35-nation Conference
on Security and Coopera-
tion in Europe, the fear
that the Soviet Union
would gain more from the
1975 Helsinki pact than
the West was-allayed dur-
ing the Madrid session;
which re-opened this
week.
"Instead of Helsinki be-
coming a tool for Soviet
propaganda, it is now a tool
for liberty and human
rights," he told an audience
of some 100 Jews and Chris-
tians at the Episcopal
Cathedral Church of St.
John the Dvine in Manhat-
tan.
Kampelman, who is also
vice chairman of the ADL's
National Commission, said
that in the forthcoming ses-
sion the U.S. will support a
follow-up meeting to Mad-
rid, to further pursue Soviet
compliance on human
rights issues.

Young Israel of Green-
field will hold its sixth an-
nual auction-dinner Feb. 8
